Aako TEC (Triethyl Citrate) is a multifunctional light emollient, which is non-occlusive, non-oily, with low viscosity, resulting in fast spreading properties, rapid absorbency and low residual tack on the skin.
Emollient particularly suitable in sun care formulations due to its excellent compatibility profile with hard to dissolve organic sun filters. It functions as a non-oily emollient lubricant with mild drying effects and soft feel to the skin, making it perfect for Sun care and after Sun formulations. Aako TEC is used in deodorants as it inhibits the enzymatic decomposition of sweat components.
The sensory perception and responses shown by Aako TEC may be incorporated in various products in cosmetics: Sun Care products, Deodorants, Shower Gels, Facial Cleanser or Foams and After Shave Preparations.
